No Etsy sales to report yet. However, there is good news to share. I got an order for a scarf today. That’s my first order for this month. Sometimes, giving gifts to friends and family is a good form of advertising. I got the order because V’s boyfriend liked the scarf I crocheted for her . V’s scarf is chocolate-brown. Her boyfriend wants a black scarf. Thank you V.
More good news, I now have 4 items crocheted to add to my Etsy shop. I send my items I want posted on Etsy to my friend A to photograph for me. I hope to give him all I have finished by March 22. Hopefully, he will email me the photos before March 31. But, if he takes a little longer it is no problem. He is doing me a big favor. He is a professional photographer and he isn’t charging me.
I will take pictures myself of other items I make, that I don’t plan to sell on Etsy, so that I can post them on this blog. When I finally get Etsy orders, I have found a few people who have volunteered to go post office for me. I delegate as many tasks to others as I can. It leaves me more energy to crochet.
I learned not to be so prideful. I do what I am physically able to do. I ask for help for what I can’t do. If I don’t get help with something it doesn’t get done. With each day, I become more accepting of what doesn’t get done. I rejoice in all my accomplishments no matter how small they seem. I am thankful for all others do for me.
I decided to use the project section of the Ravelry.com site to list my hooks and knitting needles. I am also keeping track of my projects in Ravelry’s project section. Yesterday, I crocheted P’s scarf. I didn’t finish it. Today, I started a baby sweater. I have small newborn baby caps posted on Etsy that haven’t sold yet. I decided to crochet a matching sweater for the caps to post on my Etsy shop. Well, it’s time for me to get back to crocheting that sweater.
